Weight-based grinding for extreme accuracy makes it easier to make that perfect cup of coffee. Baratza’s groundbreaking Vario-W is a fully integrated real-time weight-based grinder.
It has all the features of the Vario including small footprint, macro/micro adjustment, ceramic burrs, and a broad range of grind, but uses a weight-based dosing approach rather than a time-based approach.
The Vario-W’s intuitive macro/micro adjustments offer 230 distinct and repeatable settings for any style of coffee.
Burrs: The Vario-W’s 54 mm professional ceramic flat burrs produce accurate grinding, high throughput and remain sharp twice as long the highest quality steel burrs. The Vario-W grinds 1.6 grams/second for espresso and 2.2 grams/second for Press. The broad range of grind (230 microns to 1150 microns) and the narrow particle distribution (lack of fines) are the hallmarks of the superiority of the Vario-W’s burrs.
Digital Control Panel: The front-mounted control panel with LED display is easy and intuitive. Three programmable buttons allow the user to program in the desired weight (+/- 0.1). Simply press the START button and the Vario-W automatically delivers precise dosing.
Grind Adjustment: The Vario-W offers macro and micro adjust for fine tuning with ease. The macro adjust moves from fine to coarse grinding in 10 distinct and repeatable settings. A secondary micro adjust arm further divides each of the 10 macro steps into 20 distinct settings. Motor: A powerful, high torque DC motor effortlessly drives the burrs. This motor turns slowly resulting in cool, quiet operation and permits long grinding duty-cycles. The circuitry is equipped with an automatically resetting, thermal cutoff switch.
Cleaning: Burrs are easily removable with no tools, making cleaning very easy.
Steel Burrs: 54mm flat steel burrs are available for the Vario-W. These are for use in a Vario-W dedicated to grinding for manual brew, using a medium to coarse grind. They have been designed to enhance the flavor in the cup. To be clear, these will NOT grind fine enough for espresso. They are solely for a coarser grind.
